Club Nights – Wednesdays

Every Wednesday night at 8pm, we all meet at the Focus Centre in Galashiels.

During the evening it’s a chance to catch up with each other and have a general chat about anything, not just amateur radio.

Sometimes, a member will bring in a radio or other piece of equipment for everyone to look at, and quite often the lid gets taken off and the insides tinkered with.

Sometimes we set up the club radio and make some contacts, or set it up alongside the computer to listen to data-mode signals, such as SSTY, RTTY or PSK31.

Anyone interested in amateur radio, is welcome to come along and have a chat with the club and there’s even tea and coffee available.

  1. Hi, now some of the covid restrictions are lifted, are club meetings back on. I am interested in joining the club. I have no experience of this other than as a user in the military and home office.

    • Hi John
      I’ll follow up with an email later, but basically all you need to do to join is come along on a Wednesday night from 8pm to the Focus Centre in Livingstone Place ( and we’ll be there, so come in and introduce yourself. There’s no set agenda or anything to the meetings, very realxed and social. We have a chat, sometimes have a club radio operating on the HF antenna, and have tea/coffee. We leave at 10pm.
      Looking forward to seeing you on a Wednesday night!

  5. Hello, I am relocating to Selkirk in the next two weeks and would like to join your club. Are meetings on all year round? If so I will come along to the Focus Centre at the next opportunity I have.

    • Hi Willie, yes the club nights are all year round. You’re welcome to come along any Wednesday night after 8pm, introduce yourself and meet everyone.
      We have a few active members in Selkirk so when you move there you’ll likely get a reply if you call on 145.500 or through repeaters GB3SB or GB3HK.
